Abstract

Take home messages
• Match optimal flowering period to growing environment to maximise grain yield potential.
• One variety doesn’t fit all; there are no commercially available varieties that are broadly adapted across a wide range of sowing times or growing environments.
• Optimising variety phenology and sowing time combinations achieves grain yield stability across a wide sowing window.
• Probability of sowing opportunities will influence variety choice and sowing time decisions.
